This upcoming event features AFAA member Dr Zachary Dunbar.
Dr. Zachary Dunbar, Senior Lecturer in Theatre (VCA-Theatre), will discuss with Professor Barry Conyngham (Dean of VCA-MCM) his journey from being a concert pianist to theatre practitioner and academic. Zachary reflects on the pros and cons of an interdisciplinary career, and particularly how music provides unique insights into actors, training, and the challenges of rehearsing and performing.
The dialogue will be interspersed with a piano performance of works by the nineteenth century romantic composer, Franz Liszt, music that dramatizes love’s conflicted interests – or possibly the soundings of an interdisciplinary career.
